In brief: Checkup indicated

You likely have progressed from an upper respiratory infection to a lower respiratory condition - either bronchospasm or pneumonia.
Fever would suggest the latter. Wheezing would suggest the former. Since there are treatments for both, you should get checked rather than suffer!
